Cold-blooded scandal plagues Hockey Canada and the Canadian Hockey League

Hockey Canada and the CHL have officially released a settlement with a woman who was allegedly sexually assaulted by eight CHL players, including members of the 2017-2018 World Junior gold medal team. After receiving the settlement, the woman agreed to drop all charges.

The allegations in court revealed this:

"The complainant alleged that she was repeatedly assaulted while intoxicated in a hotel room following a Hockey Canada Foundation gala and golf event in the city in June 2018."

Eight anonymous CHL players have been named in the case, as well as Hockey Canada and the Canadian Hockey League. We would like to advise you that the following details are extremely graphic:

"According to the lawsuit, the players ordered her to fondle his genitals and perform oral sex on them. The players also allegedly straddled the plaintiff while placing their genitals on her face, slapped the plaintiff on her buttocks, spit on her, ejaculated into and onto her, had vaginal intercourse with her, preventing her from leaving the room as she tried to escape."

"Throughout the assaults, the complainant felt an ongoing apprehension of imminent physical harm of a sexual nature."

"The actions of the John Doe Defendants instilled terror and fear in Plaintiff's mind. The John Doe defendants exercised total control over the plaintiff and isolated her from others. The number of men and the fact that they had brought golf clubs into the room further intimidated the plaintiff. As a result, the complainant acquiesced to their repeated sexual acts and their instruction to engage in them, but this in no way constituted valid consent under the law on the part of the complainant."

The complainant alleged that she was too intoxicated to give proper consent.

"At times, the complainant cried and attempted to leave the room but was directed, manipulated and intimidated into staying, after which she was subjected to further sexual assaults," the suit states.

The settlement in this case does not amount to an admission of guilt by Hockey Canada and the Canadian Hockey League. But it's definitely disturbing information.
